Tuesday Awesomeness

well hello there tuesday.
i hope you're ready to play nicer than monday.

in true tuesday fashion, i would love to tell you about some amazing tunes.
so last week the new hillsong united album came out - it's called zion.
now hillsong united is probably one of my all time most favorite bands...e.v.e.r.
they have a true true gift of leading people in worship.
every time they release a new album, i'm already anticipating the next one.
i've seen them in concert and it ranks up there with one of my all time greatest life experiences.
so of course i was purchasing the album last week at midnight as soon as it came out.
and of course it's awesome.

i'm kind of in a spot right now where my heart/soul is in need of a restart/refresh/revival and this album is just the start i needed.

my most favorite song on the new album is "oceans" - and it also happens to be almost 9 minutes long! yikes!
but it's fab.

You call me out upon the waters. The great unknown where feet may fail. And there I find You in the mystery. In oceans deep my faith will stand. I will call upon Your Name. And keep my eyes above the waves. When oceans rise. My soul will rest in Your embrace. For I am Yours and You are mine. Your grace abounds in deepest waters. Your sovereign hand will be my guide. Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me. You’ve never failed and You won’t start now. Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders. Let me walk upon the waters. Wherever You would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander. And my faith will be made stronger. In the presence of my Saviour. I will call upon Your Name. Keep my eyes above the waves. My soul will rest in Your embrace. I am Yours and You are mine. 

I'm also loving one called Mercy, Mercy:

Mercy mercy bring me to my knees. As the morning calls to light the dark in me. Heaven’s story breathing life into my bones. Spirit lift me from this wasteland. Lead me home . Now I find my life in Yours. My eyes on Your Name. Arrest my heart from its reckless path. Release the chains in me. Awake my soul to the hope You hold. Your grace is all I need. Humble glory chose to carry all my shame. Rendered worthy in the shadow of Your Name. Gracious fury written in my Saviour’s scars. Mercy mercy now engraved upon my heart. Mercy mercy bring me to my knees. As the morning calls to light the dark in me. 

oh who am i kidding? i love every single song on the dang thing. you should definitely do yourself a favor and buy the whole thing. you can listen to previews on itunes, amazon, etc....

  1. Sounds like i may need to borrow your CD :)
    Great lyrics you posted.

  2. Hi there! I have ventured over from the GFC blog hop. I'm enjoying this little peak into your world! Just lovely! XOXO, Mandi @ All My Happy Endings

  3. I thought in the beginning Tuesday would be better than Monday, until I had to come into work. Looks like I goofed and posted my music on Monday instead of Tuesday as well ::doh:: But I did go back in and reschedule it for today... I'm gonna have to check out this one you're sharing today as well :) Happy Tuesday!

  4. I might just have to check this cd out...I'm in desperate need of new music, and this sounds like it would be right up my alley. I always love what Hillsong does!
